SAFER ROAD WORKERS, SAFER ROAD USERS.
That the highways sector becomes a beacon of best practice for the good management of all health, safety and wellbeing issues, and that other sectors look to us as leaders in this field.
We want to drive forward and constantly innovate, never standing still and ensure we always strive to be seen as pioneers in our sector.
We want to look back in years to come and be proud to see that we have made a lasting difference for everyone who works in our industry at every level.
Online submissions to the SH Awards now open
Online submissions to the SH Awards-the only awards ceremony in the highways sector voted for by the industry-is now open for entries.
This exciting new initiative outlines the improvements made and raise in awareness over the last few years in the health, safer and wellbeing sector. Now Safer Highways has made the move to ensure this works gets rewarded and recognised by the industry.
Those interested in entering have until the end of May but public voting will start at the end of January, so they are advised to enter as soon as possible if they want to maximise the time allowed for the peer-to-peer voting phase.
Safer Highways Road to Wellbeing - One Big Conversation
Recorded on 2nd December 2020 and featuring Alastair Campbell, the event offered a first look at the results of the 2020 Thriving at Work Mental Health Survey.

Make it a specific criminal offence to assault a highway worker
Change the law to ensure highways workers are afforded the same level of protection against abuse as emergency workers
Rates of abuse from members of the public towards highways workers are alarmingly high. The subject is largely ignored and only by the stiffening of penalties can we really effect positive change
OUR CHARITY PARTNER
The Lighthouse Trust supports education and training initiatives within the industry and if someone is so badly injured or suffering from an illness which means they cannot return to their normal work, we can provide access to finance to re-train within our sector. We also finance socially disadvantaged young people and young offenders through education programmes to get into construction
Our health and safety fund finances innovative and implementable ideas to improve health or safety in the work environment and on site.
